Inky Paws Challenge #8 - Sketch Challenge

I am having a blast making cards with these stamp sets from Newton's Nook.  I won last month and got a gift certificate and bought some more of there new release stamp sets. I used this adorable duck from the Spring Showers set.  Also, this challenge is a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch.
 This a one layer card that I masked off the bottom and used Teal Color Shine Spray on the top.  Then placed strips of DP with a circle from Echo Park 6X6 pack, Paradise Beach.  The cute duck is colored with Copics,  and his umbrella is paper pieced with the same DP.  See those rain drops, well they are from the same set as is the sentiment. 
Here it is!
There is lots of time to play this challenge.  Lets see what you can come up with!
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you  have a great day.


  1. So pretty, Barbara! I wouldn't have guessed the base is one layer- so cool! Thanks for playing along again with our Inky Paws Challenge at Newton's Nook Designs!

  2. Beautiful card, Barbara! I love the sparkles at the top with the raindrops, and that cute duck....sweet card!

  3. What a sweet card Barbara and I love the fact that it's a single layer base. Beautiful color palette and papers and that image and sentiment so sweet. Beautifully colored and designed. Way to go!!! AND congratulations on your win at Newton's Nook!

  4. He is super cute, and your pretty little card screams SPRING!!! Loving that spray and your raindrops too! Fantastic!

  5. So cute and see you got some new sets from Nate's Nooks. I am sure you will do those sets justice too. I like what you did with this image.

  6. Oh wow, you are really crankin' 'em out my dear. So jealous, I don't seem to have much time lately. I miss it - hope I can get back in the saddle soon. Your little sweet ducky is just so cute, and I really love your patterned papers. Great take on the sketch!! Oh, and I love those raindrops too!!
